We developed a custom education and training program for the Bureau in which hundreds of analysts, managers and leaders have participated. Topics range from research methods and data visualization to critical thinking and decision making. Our curriculum is tailored to their operations, including examples that apply to their work, their mission, and their unique data sources. We conducted webinar trainings to reach Bureau personnel located in military installations across the world, and in-person trainings to provide in-depth and interactive instruction over several days on more complex topics. We also covered timely issues, such as new policies or health challenges, and how analytics could be used to analyze and respond to those developments.
So far, we have trained hundreds of Bureau staff at a variety of levels, arming the Bureau with the practical analytical knowledge needed to innovate, improve care, lower operating costs, maximize efficiency, and support overall readiness.
